I offer both long term and short term psychotherapy and counselling from a beautiful location in central Exeter. My approach focuses on paying attention to what you are feeling in the present moment and meeting and exploring this with curiosity and empathy.
It is not uncommon to feel shaken by life's struggles. Feeling anxious, depressed, or stuck at times is all part of being human. However, sometimes these patterns can feel overwhelming, relentless or hopeless. Psychotherapy and counselling help to externalise your thinking and feeling, develop awareness and process difficult experiences. However big or small your problems are, exploring them with a trained therapist can assist you in developing options for change and moving forward in a way that enhances your life. My aim is to support you in finding your potency and autonomy and to help you feel better in your life and relationships.
I have extensive experience working with anxiety and depression and have a special interest in working with shame, self-esteem and family issues.
While I see a diverse client group, I am passionate about promoting and supporting young adults (18-25) in accessing psychotherapy and counselling.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)
BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).
Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.
Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.
All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
Areas of counselling I deal with
I offer a free phone call consultation to all prospective clients. Typically I see clients weekly although in some cases it might be appropriate to work with people more or less frequently than this. Sessions last 50 minutes and cost £50.00.
